Alicia Vikander Reveals How She & Michael Fassbender Fell in Love

Alicia Vikander looks stunning on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s September 2016 issue.

The 27-year-old Oscar-winning actress opened up about falling in love with her boyfriend Michael Fassbender while working on their upcoming movie The Light Between Oceans.

The stars spent a month isolated in a lighthouse and Alicia admits she was feeling “terrified and very alone” at the beginning of the shoot, but Michael helped her feel comfortable.

“He was very sweet at letting me in… He was like, ‘Can you please give me a note? What do you think I should do?’ It was such a sweet thing to kind of let me in,” she said.

Michael raved about her in an interview for the issue.

“She doesn’t take anything for granted,” he said. “With a lot of these actresses coming out, there’s this bravery that you don’t see so much in male actors. . . . I noticed this as well with Lupita [Nyong'o] in 12 Years a Slave”this focus and understanding that there’s an opportunity given to you and you grab it… [Alicia] doesn’t mind taking a character she’s playing to an ugly place. Her level of commitment made me focus and make sure I was as committed.”
